Kaya Ko: I Believe in Me” Interaction
The theme of the interaction was “Kaya Ko: I Believe in Me.” The aim of the interaction was to build self-affirmation and confidence among the children. Theresia del Rosario, Trisha Balan, Sophia Chua, and Xeina Canlas of St. Pedro Poveda College also helped facilitate the interaction.
Some of the activities included “Ang Pangarap Ko…,” which helped the kids imagine their plans for the future through drawing and writing, and “Ako ay si Superhero…,” where kids drew themselves as superheroes and wrote their special powers.
There was also a nutrition seminar for the parents of the patients, given by Mrs. Maria Olivia Gonzalez. Mrs. Gonzalez talked about different affordable ways the parents could provide their family a nutritious diet by using fresh local produce which they can grow in their own backyard.
At the end of the day, the children went home with smiles of joy and hope in their faces.
